Dufour-Lapointe topped Hannah Kearney of Norwich, Vermont, 19-16.
”I’m just so happy when you feel like you’re almost there. I can’t explain myself right now,” Dufour-Lapointe said. ”Hannah won in Calgary and she’s my biggest competitor maybe right now and now I win in her country and I’m really happy with myself.”
Kearney is retiring at the end of the season.
